Thriller Flash Mob in Rogers Park


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Xanfn1tozo&feature=youtu.be

I DID IT! I was in my first flash mob ever! On Sunday morning I did the Thriller dance sequence at the Glenwood Farmer's Market (in Chicago, IL USA) with about 25 other people who did this for the sheer hell of it. If you watch this, you won't see much of me and my friend Ceece, who was also there. We were on the far end that didn't get videoed much at all. But you see me for a moment: in a gray hat, sunglasses and a bright orange scarf. I LOVE HALLOWEEN!

Me at work today, wearing my glowing pumpkin earrings.
Happy Halloween to everyone who celebrates it!

Mick, what does England celebrate at this time of year? And how do they celebrate it?

Dress up in witches outfits although its growing halloween isn't that big over here.

Of course we have a big event on November 5th which is Bonfire night.
People build large fires at which they burn a Guy (dummy), have fireworks, eat parkin, cinder toffee, jacket potato's (done in fire, etc.
Its to celebrate the gunpowder plot in which a bloke called Guy Fawlkes and his followers tried but failed to blow up the houses of parliament in 1605.
For the record Guy was from York (near where i live) and it seemed a good idea to me.
